Spirit, the Angels, the Universe, your guides…..will often ‘speak’ to you through signs and symbols. It could be that you see repeating number sequences (1111, 444, 1818), animals (owls, butterflies), white feathers or 5p coins on the ground wherever you go. Whereas these signs and symbols will have universal meaning, they also can form part of your own personal dialogue and connection with spirit, the universe or whatever you subscribe to. Popping up in your life in order to order to offer you what you need as you move through your normal daily life.
SIGNS + SYMBOLS: MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
Like you I also see repeated number sequences or ask for signs when making important decisions. However, I’ve also found from giving countless psychic card readings is that during a reading different colours, numbers, symbols and animals mean specific things to me. Therefore, when I see these symbols, colours etc in a reading I instantly know what I am being guided to and have the opportunity to work with spirit to probe deeper. So, you could say that it’s like having a personal language system/set of codes that enables me to understand what they are communicating with me.
On noticing how this worked in readings I also realised that this is also the case when I see signs and symbols in my daily life. Yes, these symbols have universal meanings, yet they also mean something personal to me. For example, seeing white butterflies means that my nan is close by and wants me to know I’ll be alright. I saw them a lot as soon as she passed and they always left me with a feeling of being loved and looked over, no matter what. By listening to my body and noticing how the sign made me feel I developed my own, personal understanding of what this sign meant for me.
Could this also be something that you can learn to do too?
KNOWING WHAT THE SIGNS MEAN TO YOU
I believe that you too can learn to understand the significance of the repeated signs and symbols that come up for you. It’s just a matter of time, commitment and practice. Some things you might find helpful in doing this include:
1. Google it
I’ve put the most obvious suggestion first because it’s actually something that many don’t consider to do, preferring for others to tell them what their sign and symbols mean. This is fine yet when you search these things out yourself, you will be guided to the “answer” that is most appropriate for you at that time. Also, by doing your own search you can check in with yourself and decide what resonates with you. What really hits home and gives you that sense of “Aha, I get it“, whilst being able to eliminate the rest.
2. Thoughts + words
Begin to notice what you tend to be thinking and saying when you notice these signs. Notice whether or not your words and thoughts are positive, fuelled by negative thinking or driven by the ego. If it’s the latter then maybe the signs are guiding you away from fear and the egoic mind, right back to love. However, if the words and thoughts are aligned with love then keep in mind that you could be being guided to keep up the good work and honouring you for doing your best to align with the energy of love and the Creator.
3. Alignment + Confirmation
Often these signs and symbols will find their way to you when you are in your element. Totally absorbed and engaged in an activity that is lighting you up from within. Therefore, when you take a momentary break to look up from what you’re doing the sign you see could be a nod from above to say “You’re aligned!” It may also be confirmation about something that you have asked for guidance on, eg: What is my purpose? What work should I be doing? Is this guy for me? Is this project/idea ready to be worked on?
4. Feelings + Your body
Notice how you were feeling when you noticed your repeated sign. Are you always seeing the sign when you feel this way? For example, you may loathe your job and feel the soul call to get on wriggle on to find new work. You might be asking for guidance on this and find that your sign pops up every time you feel super bored, anxious or crappy. Could this be the answer that you are seeking? Confirmation that it’s time to start looking elsewhere. Maybe you see a white feather when you are feeling low and thinking of someone in particular. Seeing that white feather may bring on a feeling of comfort, peace, love or relief. Could it be that this your sign for reminding you that you’re loved, guided or being watched over. How you feel when you see the sign, particularly if the feeling resonates within your body (butterflies, headache, warm feeling within), can be an indicator of what spirit is wanting to communicate with you at that time.
ARE YOU READY TO LEARN WHAT UNIVERSAL SIGNS SPECIFICALLY, MEAN FOR YOU?
Just begin with noticing when you see the signs and how you feel, either after you have seen them or before. Take notes and spend time reflecting and looking over your notes to see if there are any patterns.
As mentioned be aware of where the feelings resonate in your body. Those who have followed me for years know that I’ve long since talked about listening to your body because it can reveal so much about yourself that you may not be aware of. Your intuition will often speak to you through your feelings and this is translated by the body, especially when you override or suppress your feelings. Pay attention.
Take your time and try not to get frustrated if it all feels like gobbledygook at first. By all means, use the people and resources available to you, yet also learn to trust your own inner guidance. I’ve found that in doing so you also build that strong relationship with self whilst nurturing your relationship with Source, the Creator or whoever you believe in. This is a relationship that may take time and commitment to establish. Yet it’s so worth it.
